Comments & ID Thoughts

This group of spiders is prolific around the outside of my house. Seem similar to daddy long legs and cellar spiders. The largest one (left) has a body that is roundish with a green or brown color and some design. The other one (right) has a more rectangular body, more brown than green. Both bodies are possibly 1-3cm. Their last legs have two little block dots (like knobs) on each leg. In this web there are at least two other spiders who belong in the same little family; a big and little one with round/green bodies, and a big and little one with more rectangular/brown bodies. All hanging upside down in their web. Front legs are twice as long as the rest.

The “families” of spiders you are referring to are actually mating pairs. The one on the left of the photo is a female, the other a male. These spiders are called Marbled Cellar Spiders (Holocnemus pluchei). https://bugguide.net/node/view/475662
